Whether you’ve been thinking of selling your home, or if you’ve been brainstorming for ways to improve properties for sale; bathroom is a good place to start. Bathroom is an essential part of the house that will come under scrutiny by potential buyers.
These days, people spend more and more time in the bathroom. While often not a focal point in a house, worn-off looking bathroom may potentially put off potential buyers. Your bathrooms don’t have to be dressy for your house to sell, but there’s an unspoken expectation that it needs to be more than just functional to appeal to buyers.
Bathroom is more than just utilitarian
Attractive bathrooms are often a big selling point to houses. This does not only apply to bathrooms with steam showers and saunas. Bathrooms that look well-designed and well-maintained shows value increase.
Good lighting, mirrors, sinks, tubs or showers, all plays a role in a presentation of a bathroom. Consider up-scaling your bathroom; simple things like glazing your shower heads and pipes would make it look new, and therefore more attractive.
Up to 70% recoup of renovation cost
Renovating bathrooms may not be the biggest contributor to the return of investment of renovating your house, but with a good strategy, it could give you a large ROI. Some claims bathroom remodeling gives up to 70% recoup of the cost spent in the renovation. Additional facilities such as heated floors would give a considerable increase to your property’s value.
Consider the number of bathrooms
If you own a 3 bedroom house with only one bathroom, consider an additional bathroom. It could be a full bathroom, or if you lack space a half bathroom with just toilet and a sink could work.
Having more than one bathroom does not simply serve to increase your house’s value—families tend to find having more than one bathrooms much more functional anyway.
Stick to mid-range renovation
Make sure to have a budget and not splurge on bathrooms. They are important parts of a house that everyone looking to sell their home or properties should look into improving, but staying within your budget is a must.
Don’t overspend on installing a sauna just to increase your house’s value, especially if other parts of your house still need work. Stick to mid-range modifications; thorough planning helps with cutting down the cost.
Remodel your bathroom
Remodeling bathrooms depend on how much of the bathroom needs to be renovated, or how much you want your bathroom to be updated.
If there is a particularly old bathroom that needs a lot of work, or work that’s spread out throughout parts of the bathroom, consider renovating the whole thing, magicking one that looks brand-new.
This might save a lot of time and energy instead of patching up a lot of different things. You can cut budget by visiting flea markets and secondhand stores for a lot of things in the bathroom, from mirrors to wall decorations.
